STATEWIDE -- Indiana House Republicans are rejecting an effort to freeze college tuition in the state.

The bill would have kept a student's tuition at the rate it was when they enrolled in their freshman year.

Supporters wanted to ensure a student's tuition rate wouldn't increase while they were attending any public school in Indiana, even if the school increased the tuition before they graduated.

The average Hoosier college student leaves school with about $30,000 in debt.
